Today, Kolink is launching two very unique looking cases- the Rocket Heavy Mini-ITX chassis and the Stronghold Overseer. Both aim to offer strong value and a feature set that supports powerful PC builds.
The Kolink Rocket Heavy is a 15.8L-sized Mini-ITX case with extensive hardware support despite its reduced dimensions. The front aluminium panel has hexagon cutouts to improve airflow, while the side tempered glass panels allow users to showcase their system “from most angles”.
This SFF case only supports Mini-ITX motherboards, but it can house SFX/SFX-L PSUs, GPUs with up to 340mm in length, and up to 85mm tall CPU coolers. There are 2x 2.5-inch drive bays, a 3.5-inch drive bay, and 3x expansion slots inside the case. In the package, there’s a 150mm PCI-E 3.1 Riser Cable included to vertically mount the GPU. The front I/O panel has 2x USB-A 2.0 ports, 2x USB-A 3.0 ports, a USB-C 3.2 port, a power button, and an audio-out/in 3.5mm jack.
Regarding cooling support, the Rocket Heavy supports up to 2x 120mm fans (1x PWM fan included) or a 120/240mm radiator on the top and 1x 120mm fan on the motherboard panel (slim fan recommended). Both the top and front panels have dust filters to prevent unwanted dust inside the case.
The Kolink Stronghold Overseer is a budget mid-tower with an impressive set of features given its “attractive pricepoint”. Featuring a tempered glass side panel, PSU shroud, and a vented front panel, this case “ticks all the boxes and then some”.
Supporting ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX motherboards, ATX PSUs with up to 190mm in length, 175mm tall CPU coolers, and up to 340mm long GPUs, builders won’t find many issues in building a system inside it. The Stronghold Overseer has 7x expansion slots, 2x 3.5/2.5-inch drive bays, and another 3x 2.5-inch drive bays for your storage devices. The front I/O panel comes with 2x USB-A 2.0 ports, 2x USB-A 3.0 ports, a power button, and an audio-out/in 3.5mm jack.
Cooling support includes up to 3x 120mm/2x 140mm fans (1x 120mm fan included) on the front, 2x 140/120mm fans on the top, and a 120mm fan on the rear (also included). Additionally, there are mountings for up to a 360/280mm radiator on the front, and up to a 280/240mm radiator on the top. Dust filters are included on the top and on the bottom of the case.
